"IIF 2018 - PROPERTY INSURANCE - the NatCat challenge and beyond" Conference gathers international insurance professionals in Prague

Natural disasters in 2017 caused overall economic losses of USD 340 billion - the second-highest figure ever, show the latest data published by Munich Re. Moreover, 83% of natural disaster losses in 2017 were in North America, although only a quarter of all catastrophes occurred there.

Thus, 2017 was, without any doubt, one of the costliest years of the last decade in NatCat terms. It was also the year during which some other significant trends emerged. Among them, the increasing exposure to cyber risks or the higher relevance of the non-material property damages resulting from terrorist attacks of, simply, because of the disruptions produced in the production chains of the globalized industry.

The "IIF 2018 - PROPERTY INSURANCE - the NatCat challenge and beyond" conference will address the above issues, also focusing on the role that the latest technologies may play in helping the industry to deal with the current and future challenges, thus better serving its customers.
